The second game of the T20I series between West Indies and Bangladesh will be played on July 3 at the Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica. The first T20I was washed out due to rain and both sides will look to get lead in the series in the second T20I. Both teams will look to dominate the game if any game happens and take a lead in the three-match T20I series.
Persistent rain resulted in the game being reduced to 16-overs per side. West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bowl first. Bangladesh got off to a solid start thanks to experienced campaigner Shakib Al Hasan. He smashed 29 off 15 balls but departed in the eighth over just before the rain-break.
The game was again curtailed to 14-overs per side and Bangladesh scored 105 for the loss of eight wickets before the rain arrived. No further play was possible and the match was abandoned.
The players will hope to get some game time in the second T20I and play to the best of their potential and take an unassailable lead in the series.
